All
Synopsis

Tobar Beannaithe documents the last traces of a living tradition that predates the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. By visiting some extraordinary wells on their special day of devotion, the documentary explores the reasons why people visit, the connection they have with these places and the cures and benefits they find. Tobar Beannaithe provides a fascinating glimpse into a relatively unexplored area of Irish cultural heritage.
